NAPTIP to Fish Out Human Trafficking Cartel Group Abroad to Face Justice in Nigeria


The National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) has affirmed its commitment to fish out Nigerian cartel group that engages in human trafficking from their hideouts to face justice back home in Nigeria.

NAPTIP’s Director General, Ms Julie Okah-Donli, who made the revelation at a media interactive program in Abuja explained that the agency was already contacting the suspected cartel’s host countries to that affect.

She said that though human traffickers and their sponsoring networks were posing a great challenge in the effort to break the cartel, it will be unraveled.

Ms Okah-Donli stated that her agency remains determined to free Nigerians from the menace of human trafficking which she said is worse than slavery.

She used the opportunity to commend traditional rulers for their support to the agency in the fight against human trafficking especially the Omonoba of Benin who together with his chiefs were already organizing a stakeholders campaign to discourage traditional practitioners from rendering support to the perpetrators.
